Lark--disappointing

lisaf | Aug 16, 2006 06:06 PM

So after reading all of the fuss around here my dh and I finally tried Lark for my birthday. We went on a weeknight at 7 pm and were pleased to be seated right away.

They were out of the octopus so we tried a prawn special. Also ordered the rosti potatoes, braised pork, and the pancetta. The food, while reasonably tasty was tiny portions and we were still hungry after 4 dishes. We had three cheeses which do not include crackers or dried fruit, just the cheese for $11. They were ok. We had an unmemorably dessert of liquor soaked spongetype cake with sorbet and berries. They brought complimentary dessert wine with it since it was a special occasion.

It wasn't terrible, but considering the bill was over $100 for the two of us without alcohol it was disappointing. None of the food really wowed me either. I've tried it, no need to go back or recommend it to others.

Next time I think we'll just go back to Mistral.
